Magical Moments

 

The day finally arrived with much excitement and nerves. Getting married to your sweetheart is an incredible feeling. Walking down the aisle on the arm of the only man who lit up my world (my dad) and being given to the man who is my world (my husband) was significantly beautiful. We had friends and family who flew in from all corners of our earth and the day and evening spent altogether celebrating the love and unity shared between my husband and I and our family and friends was magical. We smashed plates (Greek style) we danced and laughed. I sang for my husband. There were tears and a lot of love. My husband and I were King and Queen for a day. Magical memories made.

The Honeymoon

 

Yes we did indeed! We were blessed by my husband's sister and my wonderful sister in law with a wedding gift like no other. She sent us for two weeks all expenses paid to Thailand. We had an amazing time in such a beautifully spiritual and breathtaking place.

My Special Day

Romantic chic with a touch of Bohemian.
My dress was body fitted and consisted of lace and pearl detail. Open back with lace detail down the back and capped sleeves. Credit to Yvette at Blush d'Maree. An amazing seamstress.
My lingerie was minimal. Just a pair of white lace underwear.
My shoes were rose gold peep toes with bow detail in the front. Dancing shoe style.
My make up and hair were done by Kirsti van Zyl. A true artiste. I had my hair loose and wild with a plaited section down the front and a rose gold head chain to accentuate the look. My make up was subtly Arabic with a rose gold cat eye and nude lip. Accessories were my head chain, rose gold and crystal drop earrings and a rose gold and crystal bracelet.

The Venue

We said our vows and sealed the deal in the beautiful chapel at Fort Simon. We then proceeded to the grounds of Fort Simon and then to Fort Anna for our reception.
There are no sleeping facilities available, so guests stayed in surrounding areas in Stellenbosch as did my husband and I for our wedding night.
